I have a well-established photography site http://www.junglephotos.com
I’d like to implement Flashlight for a major upgrade to the site. Since it was all hard-coded, it’s going to take a lot of work, so I want to get it right!
Right, now there are four sections to the site. The front page is a WP install, and has mostly information about the site. It is mostly text. The other three sections are photography sections for the Amazon, Africa and Galapagos Islands. Please can you help me figure out the best way to implement Flashlight for a rebuild. For example, I’d like to keep the first section front and center but have the gallery functions for the photo sections. How could I do this? And what gallery option would be the best? Each photo comes with a caption and a link to an information page, so it’s important that the photo caption supports links.
I’d very much appreciate any thoughts or insights, or even suggestions for an alternative theme if Flashlight might not be the best for this.
To be honest it’s hard to say if Flashlight is the best solution or not (depends on your client, etc.). If you want to display image data I’d use the “Flexible Grid” aka Masonry which shows the exif data underneath the image. Another solution would be the “Image list” attached to entry. However the title/description does not support a custom link (maybe you can add it in to the exif data but I’m not sure).
